ATA Carnets Advance the Blue Economy for All

Boomerang carnets® knows first-hand that the Blue Economy represents many sectors uniquely bound to the Earth’s oceans.  Our 35 years of experience in the ATA Carnet business has seen many customers representing the Blue Economy grow in size and number.  The ocean has become increasingly important to the world as a major factor to the health of our planet and the global economy.  As a result, the awareness of our dependency upon the ocean and its health has become a key concern worldwide.  By the start of the next decade, the Blue Economy across the globe will double to $3 trillion.  With an ATA Carnet, businesses, organizations, institutions, and individuals can affordably be part of that growth.

The ATA Carnet is an internationally accepted unified customs document for temporarily exported merchandise or goods.  It allows cross border movement of those goods import-duty and -tax free into 87+ carnet countries and territories for up to a year.  The ATA Carnet is known as the Merchandise Passport for boomerang freight® and ideal for professional equipment, goods, or commercial samples moving in and out of countries.  The ATA Carnet is a tremendous trade tool for growing your business, getting your service to where it is needed, and furthering your organization’s mission internationally.  For example, ATA Carnets make it affordable for scientific research teams to tag sea mammals for conservation and allow a manufacturer to avoid import-duty and -taxes on an instrument that measures toxins in sea water.

Boomerang’s customers in the Blue Economy represent many sectors of businesses, organizations, manufacturers, service providers, and individuals.  They include:   

  • Whale research and conservation
  • Sonar oceanographic and hydrographic equipment
  • Alternative power and generation services
  • Marine technology, Autonomous ships, Sea machines
  • Portable, field-usable instrumentation for coastal and freshwater research
  • Hydrographic survey equipment to survey the sea floor
  • Maritime security technology
  • Ocean acoustical and instrumentation systems
  • Ocean research and conservation

Boomerang carnets’ own Monika Jadeszko, Vice President, Global Carnet Operations shares her thoughts on the Blue Economy: “I am very humbled that Carnets are used to promote the health and awareness of marine environment.  The variety of uses that Carnet conventions allow, contributes to the sustainable use of ocean resources and creation of jobs.  The ease and simplicity of Carnet use in conjunction with the cost savings to customers allows many pioneers to test and implement the newest technological advances that contribute to ocean preservation and regeneration.  Though Carnets are good for 12 months, their use in the Blue Economy have the potential to last for generations to come.”

With an ATA Carnet you will avoid import-duty and -taxes when your goods, equipment, or samples cross international borders.  Whether you are taking something as small as a laptop or a technologically rigged buoy weighing tons to an international green port, customs clearance will be easier with an ATA Carnet.  The carnet’s benefits allow any size company to share innovation and service in foreign markets easier and more affordably.
